This place was very relaxing and great service in all areas! The rooms were very big and the set up was really nice. I love the hammocks outside of the rooms. A great place to relax and read a book listening to the waves from the beach! The breakfast was very good as well simple but the fruit juices were... More

Thank you very much TQueenRen, It was our pleasure to have you at La Barquita. Sorry for the trouble with internet...We're really working hard to have a good Wifi but you know we live in Ecuador Manabi and it's quite hard to have good tech services. We actually have two internet connections to avoid a lost of signal. We should... More

The $75 a night we paid for a double was for the beach, the pool and the top floor of the boat-shaped restaurant. The rooms were very basic for the price, some of the beds had bedbugs and were very hard, and while the shower worked, it was not up to the standards of a $75 room in Ecuador. On... More

A pool, easy access to the beach, and a restaurant in the shape of a boat. Heck yes! Super unique! From the outside it doesn't look like much, but don't be fooled, once those doors open its a hidden paradise inside. Lush garden, barbecue, and lounging hammocks. Awesomely beautiful. A must visit for a drink on the top deck of... More

We had made reservations months in advance for this place. Next day we find out we and this other couple are the only ones staying there at that point. Kitchen was not stocked and they were out of practically everything. Next day the same thing. Manager said her car was being repaired that's why she had not gone shopping. Beach... More

I liked this hotel the rooms are comfortable and nice, clean. The beach its really beautiful but careful with the ocean its rough! if you like surfing or using a board this is the place to be. Food takes too long to get served and its ok not as good as the restaurants outside the place.

You wouldn't expect this place to be as nice as it is when you drive up to it. It's just off the main road from Puerto Lopez to Montañita and doesn't look like much from outside. Once you go in, however, the grounds are lovely with trees, grass and flowers with cabins around the central area and small swimming pool.... More

The pool is gorgeous, its the perfect temperature and very clean and well maintained! The beach is gorgeous with plenty of beach chairs and hammocks with nice overhangs to protect from the sun. The grounds are impeccably maintained and very relaxing. The rooms could use a little updating, but for a beach hostel not too bad. Service was okay, it's... More

Traveling with my wife and brother in law thru La ruta del sol, and we were looking for a hostel, went to a few in Ayampe. Although the Ayampe hostels were very nice, the ones we looked at lacked AC. We needed AC bc we were also traveling woth our 5month old baby. We found exactly what we were looking... More

We decided to go whale watching and found this beach hotel located between Las Tunas and Puerto Rico. Loved the peaceful atmosphere, friendly welcoming service and easy access to walk the beach. We tried the restaurant, was good for breakfast but for lunch and dinner we went to Isla Salango - Pelicano and Carmitas, and Casa_Vecchia_Ristorante_Pizzeria in Puerto_Lopez (restaurant sign...

Overall, I'd say that our trip was fun- but that was because of the people we were with, not the staff. We booked a trip of expats (there were 21 of us) which shouldn't have been a problem because the hotel can fit something like 40 or so. They sent two vans to the airport to get us- only two....
